Do not eat unhealthy food. You will gain weight, but it will be fat and could cause diseases. It will put you on a bad track. If a diet to maintain weight consists of about 2000 calories, in order to lose weight you should eat less, but not too little, so about 1600 calories and exercise. In order to gain weight, I would eat 2200 calories a day from good food (nuts, fruit, lean protein, green leafy vegetables, complex carbs such as multigrains, potatoes, starchy vegetables like squash or peas) and keep the same exercise regiment.
You will gain healthy weight instead of bad fat weight and you will have more energy and look great!

If you want to put on weight, you should work out, to insure that you
put on muscle and not fat. Healthy weight gain, just like healthy
weight loss, takes time and requires a conscious effort to apply good
Recommended Ways to Gain Weight
Have meals with the right balance of proteins, carbohydrates, and the
right kinds of fat (such as unsaturated and monounsaturated fats,
olive oil, canola oil, pistachios, almonds and walnuts). Heinemann
suggests the following ratio: 60%-70% carbohydrates, 10%-15% protein,
and a small amount of fat.
Eat foods higher in calories, vitamins, and minerals, as opposed
to higher in fat or sugar. Pack more nutritious calories in each
serving. For example, you may add grated cooked eggs to mashed
potatoes, ground chicken to soups and gravies, cheese in casseroles,
eggs, and soups, and nonfat dried milk in soups, shakes, milk, and
If you get too full too fast, try having more high-calorie foods or
slices of foods as opposed to consuming the whole thing (raisins
versus grapes, granola and Grape Nuts versus corn flakes, mango slices
versus the whole mango).
Limit drinking beverages to a half-hour before and after a
Drink mixed juices (apple/berry, peach/orange/banana as opposed to one
juice beverages) for a higher calorie intake. With moderation, you may
add in good fat sources to meals such as nuts, avocado, olives, and
fatty fish (salmon and mackerel).
Snack in between meals. Nuts, dried fruits, and yogurt
are good options, but it's also important to find nutritious foods
that you will enjoy. Have a nutritious snack before bedtime, such as a
peanut butter sandwich.
First you are working out way too much, second to gain weight the healthy way drink Ensure. Its the safest way to gain weight and its also doctor recommended. My doctor put me on it when I was 98 pounds now I weigh 115. It takes about two weeks your body to get used to the drink because of the vitamins, it helped a lot and with Ensure you different flavors. My favorite is butter pecan but there is strawberry, chocolate and vanilla. Its an easy way to gain weight the safe way, just don't drink Ensure so fast drink a bottle through out the day so you body can get used to it.
Your fortunate even though, I imply you surely have a difficult time gaining weight by way of the sound of it, however anting to wasting weight is worse. Eat healthful, and ample energy. And excerise! Also, provide your self a while- you might nonetheless be developing.
A good way is to slowly add more and more food into your daily life to give your body time to adjust. Try eating more bread, beef, and sweets.
DO NOT EAT FAST FOOD!!! eating healthy isn't only for loosing weight, its also for gaining. you have to eat foods that are high in calories. yes, fast food has LOTS of calories but you'll ruin you're body eating it.
here's some ideas of what to eat for breakfast, lunch, dinner and in between, snacks:
-lots of oatmeal
-bagels and cream cheese, preferably, Philadelphia cream cheese or Laughing Cow
-yogurt, preferably plain yogurt with fruits (try not to get light yogurt, yea i know you're trying to gain weight but sometimes you accidently buy it. Why you shouldn't buy it: most light yogurt contain phenylalanine (a sweetener) which damages brain cells
-Higher calorie versions of high fiber cereals, such as Nature’s Path and Barbara’s Bakery varieties (270-300 calories or more per 1.5 cup servings)

yea i know ur only 14 but you can still take them, i take women's supplements and im also a teen
-eat sandwiches, with whole wheat bread, tomatoes, avocado, lettuce, a bit of onions, bell peppers, and for the meat, try not to use processed meat, if you like turkey use Jennieo products, for ham, all i can say is if its expensive then its most likey good for you, oh and instead of mayo, use butter, not I cant believe its not Butter, but real butter
-A salad with chicken, tomatoes, Parmesan cheese, chopped apple, corn and Ranch dressing
instead of ranch use olive oil (it doesnt really taste that great and takes some time to get used to) and/or balsamic vinegar because Ranch is high in MSG

now dinner, im not good with it but DO NOT SKIP IT
-have like a steak or fish(with lots of omega-3) or chicken (grilled), with lots of salad.
-lots of nuts: walnuts, peanuts, almonds, hazelnuts etc. that's of course if you're not allergic to them
-dried fruits: cranberries, raisins, dates, prunes (dries plums), figs, apricots, peaches, apples, pears, blueberries, cherries, strawberries, mangoes, papaya and pineapples
and of course you can eat them not dried as well
oh and drink lots of milk.....well tha'ts only for calcium and vitamin D purposes but you'll need good, strong, bones if you're really active, well even if you weren't active
if your lactose intolerant, like me, than drink lactose-free milk, its a little bit more expensive than regular milk but its worth it.
you'll know if you're lactose intolerant if after drinking milk your body sends you to the bathroom, if you know what i mean lol
Lots of info but please do read
